Notes

This is the first sleeve. There is a real learning curve for me as I have never done stranded work. I was told, thankfully, by another Ravelry member AMVS to knit the 2 strands into the first and last stitch of every row. This keeps the selvedge stitches and the first few stitches neat and even.

I also found a website called “Stringing Along” that has an excellent article by Robin Melanson on stranded knitting. I will refer to it for the 2nd sleeve and see if the result is improved. Although I am happy enough with my first sleeve. But, I would like to know how to do it even better if I can.

My pattern, which is vintage is actually Sirdar 5787.
